Aerospace

The military, aerospace and commercial airline industry are always in search of avenues to advance their current technologies. Diamond and DLC coatings have the potential to be applied to many components in an airliner or jet, including components of the engine, other moving friction bearing components, as well as interior trim components that need a protective coating or enhanced more elegant appearance.

AUTOMOTIVE

Diamond like coatings are being incorporated into the engines of not only sports cars, but new lines of production vehicles due to their ability to reduce friction and increase engine efficiency. Several components of a stock or race engine can be coated to achieve higher performance or efficiency. DLC coatings aren't limited to the engine, they can also be applied to interior trim items that you want to stand out.
